Differential drug effects on spontaneous and evoked pain behavior in a model of trigeminal neuropathic pain
The present data support IoN-CCI as a model of trigeminal neuralgia in which isolated face grooming is used as a measure of spontaneous neuropathic pain.

europathic pain is defined as pain due to a lesion or disfunction of the normal sensory pathways in either the peripheral or central nervous system (Smith et al., 2002). Metabolic disorders such as
Differential diagnosis and physical therapy management of a patient with radial wrist pain of 6 months' duration: a case.
A 57-year-old man with right radial wrist pain was diagnosed with entrapment neuropathy of the superficial radial nerve, rather than De Quervain syndrome, and treated with active and passive exercises using neurodynamic techniques.
Facial neuralgias are produced by a change in neurological structure or function. This type of neuropathic pain affects the mental health as well as quality of life of patients. There are different

Mechanisms of neuropathic pain.
The majority of research into neuropathic pain mechanisms has concentrated on changes in the peripheral nerve or spinal cord after peripheral nerve injury and most available evidence relates to changes in these parts of the nervous system and the review will, therefore, focus on these aspects.

Several independent pathophysiological mechanisms in both the peripheral and central nervous system are responsible for sensory symptoms as well as spontaneous and evoked pains in peripheral neuropathies, and a thorough analysis of sensory symptoms may reveal the underlying mechanisms that are mainly active in a particular patient.

Painful neuropathies.
Pain following peripheral nerve lesion appears to be a paradox because damage of primary afferent nerve fibres carrying nociceptive information should result in hypoalgesia, and there have been considerable advances in the understanding of factors that precipitate neuropathic pain.
The relationship of pain, allodynia and thermal sensation in post-herpetic neuralgia.
Sensory loss was less strongly, but still inversely related to pain severity for the thermal modalities of innocuous warming, cooling and cold pain, implying that there is no simple relationship between loss of peripheral nerve function and spontaneous or evoked pain.
